Fur rugs are a classic piece in any home. Not only have they never gone out of style but they look good with all types of styles. Fur rugs give the feeling and the look of luxury, and if you’re not looking in the right places they can come with a luxurious price tag too. I am going to show you a few stores where you can find affordable rugs as well as give you some tips for styling the rugs in your home.
Where to Buy:
I love to purchase my rugs from Target and Walmart. If you are having a good shopping day you might find a steal at TJ Maxx, Ross, or Marshalls. Take your time looking but if you see one that is a decent size and is $50 or less, I say go for it!
How to Decorate:
Under a coffee table:
Angle the rug in a diagonal under the table if the table is square. If you have a circle table you can angle the rug however you want. Truly. it doesn’t matter how you do it if the rug and the size of the table have a good difference in size. The way you arrange your furniture in relation to your rug will make the difference!
On top of a table:
Get creative. This all depends on the size of the table and the size of the fur. Adding decor on top of the fur is important as this sets the mood of the room. If you just place a rug on a table, the results will be awkward. Be purposeful in your decorating!
In the bedroom:
There are so many ways to put a fur rug in a bedroom. You can tuck some of it under your bed and angle it at a diagonal, you can put it under your desk chair, or you can leave it in the open like above.
In the entry way:
This is a time when the rug can really be the statement piece. So much so that it can be positioned by itself, as long as it is big enough to fill a good area of the entry. If you have a lot of traffic or you are in a place where mud is being brought in a lot I suggest not putting the rug too close to the front door. Muddy shoes and a white fur rug are NOT friends. If our have a smaller entry way like I do, you can tuck your rug under your entry table.
I would like to note that this is all faux! We love animals around here and we appreciate the price tag a little more too! A fur rug can instantly make any space cozy and welcoming. I have become quite the fan. In my apartment my roommates and I have collected a total of 4 fur rugs! That is a lot of fur in one apartment but it’s all about how it is arranged. The great thing about fur rugs is that if taken care of properly they can last a lifetime. How do you feel about fur in the home? Yay or nay?
